This is our new sharing thread. Share with us your goals for the week. Goals can be as tangible or intangible as you want them to be, as vague or as specific as you want.
I'm working on turning a pile of jeans into 6 inch denim squares. My goal for the week is to continue to do a little cutting each day, depending on how my old knee holds up- it doesn't like standing still much.
I took a pic of the before piles, and I'll be back tonight to post them, when I have more time.
So what are your goals for this week?
My goal for this week is to make my Bonus Block swap blocks for another board. I have to make 13 and didn't pick the fabric yet
Another goal is to make at least 1 Sylvia block.
I think this is enough for a start!
My goals for this week: 2 mug rugs and the start of the COF row robin I have now.
I plan to choose another one of my pieced tops and layer it. I will also do project #2 in the Decorative Stitches book. It looks like another fun week! Amy
My goal for this week is to jump over the mental hurdle I've set up and quilt a quilt top that's already loaded and waiting on the frame.
Looking forward to everyone's strong finishes this week.
Start designing the top for the Sandy Hook Memorial Quilt. PM all of those who are helping and get them going on their CQ portions.

My goal is to reduce the size of this scrapbag by cutting into various sizes of blocks for donation quilts.This message has been edited. Last edited by: wiley,
My parents just hit the road, so I have my sewing room back! I plan on working on finishing a table topper that's a gift for DMIL. I also want to get my BOM block done for this board and another BOM also!
My goal is to get a pr@yer quilt done. I have the strips all pinned, so it should be done in no-time!
My goal is to finally get into my sewing room and clean it up. It has become a storage room over the last few years, and it's time to get back to quilting.
Will try to do a before and after picture to post.
My goal is to work on a Halloween Baltimore BOM I have had for a few years. So far this week I have finished three blocks with 2 ready for top stitching, two ready for fusing and 1 fusible traced. I decided that I have to finish 2 UFO's a month before I can start something new, when the start of the month comes, I will go back to the UFO's. Wish me luck.
My goal this week is to make the HGTV BOM, finish a baby quilt that I had to rip apart because put a eyelet ruffle on it and then decided I didn't like it. I need to work on getting my Funky Chicken BOM put together. Hopefully, I can complete this list. Happy Sewing & good luck everyone!
Our lives are like quilts - bits and pieces, joy and sorrow, stitched with love.
My goal is similar to Musiclady. My sewing room seems to be the catch-all for things no one knows what to do with or where to put! Tomorrow I start to straighten, then...
I want to get the first BOM sewn and also try one or more of the chain blocks I think I'll use. I have a journal cover to finish, too, for a friend.
My goal is to get a QOV ready for the frame (find a backing and batting here and sew the binding strips together), applique a pansy on a vintage coverlet that is missing one, complete a row for the retreat row robin, go through some Barbie doll casual clothes and refurbish, repair and make missing outfit pieces for Cincinnati Quilt Outreach mission we adopted in Apalachia. Don't think I'll be able to complete them all!This message has been edited. Last edited by: mcpatches,
I am working on this miniature quilt and would like to have 10 more blocks done by this time next Friday.
“May God give you...For every storm a rainbow, for every tear a smile, for every care a promise and a blessing in each trial. For every problem life sends, a faithful friend to share, for every sigh a sweet song and an answer for each prayer.”
I'm hoping the idea of putting it in writing will make it come true. So here goes - my goals: finish my Row Robin row, complete the HGTV BOM for Jan, Get the fabric cut out for a pair of boot slippers for my daughter.
I am finally making a quilt for my DH and I and I fondly call it our 'Love Quilt'. I plan to work on this quilt this weekend. Here is a picture of some of the completed blocks. I have finished a few more since this picture. I'm ready to complete it. I also plan to iron all the fabric I caught on sale through the holidays and store it away. All this can be done, if I'd just put down the sock I'm knitting for my daughter. hehehe I've already finished one, just to finish it's mate........and then the orders for socks from the granbabies. Ah, my work is never done! Everyone have a great weekend and here's to hoping you get to do just exactly what you want to do. Marj
The actual pattern name is 'Stars Over Fort Sumter'. It's a kit from People, Places, & Quilts in Charleston, SC. Just in case someone wanted to know.
Finish a Florida State baby quilt for a friend at church is at the top of my list-halfway quilted-just need to finish and bind before Sunday.
Then I GET TO PLAY WITH SOMETHING NEW. I have a jillion patterns, ideas from here and there and want to do one of them before I get back to some of the UFOs.
Good luck everyone on meeting your goals. The projects shown are all pretty!
I have a long list for this week and a short week since I am leaving town on Wednesday. That's not a good combination. Here goes -
Trace 4 hearts for redwork swap
Get 2 hearts stitched
Wash, iron and cut hexie fabric
Finish 2 small ufo's
Finish row robin
Print out instructions for Sulky BOM
Work on recovering couch cushions
Decide what to do for pincushion swap and for BIL's quilt
Find challenge fabric for COF retreat
That's more than enough!!
I finished a small quilt for the front door and a table runner for the kitchen. I am planning one for each month this year. This afternoon, I have a repair on a jacket for DH which should take only about 1/2 hour then I am starting on a baby quilt. This is the tablerunner. Will post a picture of the door quilt later.
My goal is to make a washable,water proof lunch bag for my daughter..i have to get it done today..she heads back to Texas tomorrow.
i worked on it this morning,using the new plu fabric. (joanns carries it, for baby diaper covers) need to get the binding on it, and velcro closure.
Between now and next Friday I hope to:
Sew the last six blocks for Easy Street and put the blocks together.
Decide on borders for Easy Street - pieced? plain? what size? - and get them on
Make one or two more blocks to go with the four I already have done for February Sunshine Quilters and mail them.
Work on the hand applique for DGD's quilt.
Trim the edges of the quilt I just got back from the longarmer so I can start binding it next week.
Make a couple of blocks for the sampler quilt to raffle.
My goals for the week are
make pillow covers for my couch pillows, bought the fabric before Christmas, but they never got make
Finish the stitching on 1 heart redwork block
make 1 circle crazy quilt block to start on for CQJP (crazy quilt journal project)
get prices on t-shirts from 2 more places for our retreat shirts
That should give me plenty to get done.
Before I do anything fun I have to hem some pants for a couple of girls at work, then tidy my sewing room a bit.
Then I'd like to get my sorry butt out of bed just an hour earlier each day so that I can do some sewing before I head out to work. Maybe I can get my swap mugrug started &/or finished if I do that.
And, I need to decide if I'm gonna do the the BOM & if I am, decide on a color scheme & pull some fabrics!
I love this thread. If I plan on one goal per week, even if its doing only part of a quilt, I feel I'll have fulfilled the goal so I'm keeping mine small. If I get more done, all the better.
This week my goal is to take this shadowed 4-patch Stacker and layer and pin it this week.
That sounds doable to me.
My goal is to complete the mugrug I'm making for the initial mugrug swap, and get it mailed. I should be able to handle that this week.
Love the new thread! It's helped me already. My goal for this week is finish the memory quilt that I put a major dent in the quilting last night. A couple of hours more quilting then label and binding. And get my second nearly done quilt finished. I have some problem blocks to quilt. Then it's done.
My goal is to get well! This head cold, I have finally started to get better and want to get a lot of sleep and continue to get better... Chris
I have promised myself I will not pull out my sewing machine until all the holiday stuff is put away. I made a major dent on that today I only have the tree to take down tomorrow. I'm giving myself one more night of fairy lights.
My short list is:
1. my mugrug for the initial swap - already cut out.
2. Sunshine blocks
3. Quilt and bind two child-sized donation quilts.
I'll be be satisfied if I get any or all done.
My goal is to finish the pieced border for the 2012 BOM from this forum. Quilt my friends quilt on the Handiquilter and make one more 2012 wooden ornament as I gave mine away.
Keep calm and carry on
Life is good!!!
In God We Trust
My goals for this week are:
pull fabric for BOM (decided today on my color theme).
Pull FQ's for birthday swap.
And plan out my Initial Mugrug swap.
Got the lunch bag done ! Happy! my other goal this week, is to finish a "heart quilt" i started last year... groan.
Well, I finished the Pilgrim and Turkey applique. I even did some free motion quilting. Not complicated stuff, but some none the less.
Wow, Kim and patty j! You sure are taking this seriously. I'm still getting organized and you have something done already.
I forgot to mention that Sister Sue helped me with it, cutting out the pieces and bonding them on. She also gave me lots of moral support.
I'm liking the lunch bag and the mini Lori, is very beautiful and lots of little pieces. MW..that is going to be beautiful too. Deb, that Let it Snow is darling. Quiltbea, that is a very nice 4 patch. Looks like some of the goals have been met.
My goal was to finish my country rooster table cloths . just finish will trims strings and show picture tomorrow. My machine was giving me problems and took all afternoon to fix its problem. Lol boy am I hard on needles.

My goal for last week was to get a quilt on my long arm and to get my sewing room cleaned up after my DH put in the trac light. This is as good as it gets, the quilt is on the long arm waiting to be quilted.
This week will be to get the quilt done and to put the blocks for the 2012 Bom put together. Also to make a garbage bag for my DH's truck.

3. Make a baby quilt for a Baby Shower on the 12th.

Thank you Holly for starting this. I need this and hoping I will set a small goal each week that I can push myself to complete before the next posting the following week.
Some of you have been so productive already, I am encouraged by that.
I have a 60" square quilt that is to be gifted that I would like to have quilted, bound and mailed by the posting next week. I have it about 1/4 the way quilted now.

Hi all.......I need a place to commit, so here goes. By next Friday I will have completed one table runner and have it sitting on my table! I will finish the two mug rugs that have been started and will have spent at least one hour (in 15 minute increments Flylady style) cleaning, sorting straightening my room! Whew........will be back to report later!!
Thanks to who ever it is that started this!!
Emb - Your Muffin looks like my Max!
Holly - That's a lot of jeans.
I have done three things on my list so far. I have four hearts traced, I washed, ironed and cut out my hexie fabric, I have decided to make my BIL a scrappy postage stamp quilt and I have decided what to make for the pincushion swap. Now onto other things on my list.
My goal this week is to put all the Christmas boxes in the attic so I can see my sewing room. DH and I have both been down with colds and cough going on day 10. We move from the bed to the couch. Have my projects organized and have them in order, just need the energy to get started. Thanks Holly for starting the thread.
Goal: to get started cutting fabric for a week long quilt retreat in Feb. I can't wait to be with other quilters and veg out.
I have 2 lap quilts and 1 wall quilt (all UFOs) at the binding stage. A weekend of football and hand sewing is on my agenda!
Thanks for this thread, Holly. My goal for the week is to get more of my batik blocks cut and ready to sew so that when I go to my Friday sewing group, I'll have lots of work to do. I need 506 blocks and I have over 200 done and another 100 or so cut, so I'm making progress.
my goal is to finish stowing away the decorations and finish a quilt that I started hand quilting over a year ago. The border is about 18 inches wide and I have three sides done. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I am planing on one project a week for the next 10 years to get my UFO's done.
